LEADERSHIP UPDATE

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

My name is Larry Udry, and I am the editor of the CALL-IS e- newsletter, On CALL. This is just a quick teaser newsletter before the convention this year in Dallas. By the way, be on the lookout for another newsletter in late February or early March. This one should have the entire Electronic Village (EV) booklet or a link so you can peruse the schedule before the conference. In addition to the articles, one of the most important parts of this letter is the EV schedule and write-ups. The schedule is a list of all the activities currently slated for the convention, and the write-ups is a description of all the types of events. A must-have for TESOL convention goers. Of note, there is an Academic Session titled “Gaming and Language Learning” and two InterSections: one with the Elementary Education IS and the other with the International Teaching Assistant IS.

The other important piece of information I wanted to get you clued into is the Electronic Village Online (EVO). Carla Arena has said, “This project is a virtual extension of the TESOL 2013 Convention in Dallas in which educators around the globe will have the chance to enhance their professional development, network, collaborate, share, and learn with like-minded professionals in wonderful online sessions that were carefully designed by our moderators.” Please note that you don’t have to be a TESOL member to participate in these 5-week sessions. They are free and online. Visit the Announcement web page to select one among the various session offerings. Registration starts January 7, 2014. If you want to be reminded of the EVO registration period and the latest news, join the mailing list.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Larry Udry
